Judge Threatens to Arrest TV Journalists In Courthouse Hallway
Judge Paul Woodward wouldn't hear legal arguments on Tuesday against his order banning TV cameras in the same courthouse hallways as a criminal hearing involving an Oklahoma County judge and her husband.
Local TV stations hired media attorny Robert Nelon to fight the order. You can read the entire story here.
For now, Nelon points out, Woodward's order prohibits TV crews from a public area of the courthouse while allowing print journalists to "roam freely, to interview people, to stand where they want to , but the electronic media can't do the same thing."
Should he be allowed to ban cameras in the hallways?
